Paleo: Day 10

The water-leak got fixed today!!! Yay for running water!

I cooked some turkey bacon for breakfast, served with applesauce and some almond butter. FANTASTIC.

We went to the Farmer’s Market today, the weather was nice and it was fun to be out.  I picked up some ingredients for the next few days and everyone was so nice!  One lady even threw in a yellow onion with the purple ones that I bought, definitely a kind surprise.

For lunch, we had leftover steak on salads… yummy! (and easy!)

Apparently today was National Lacemaking Day (UK maybe?).  I don’t make lace, but I figured it was a good day to start the beef jerky making process.  Because jerky is totally like… um, meat’s version of lace… right? 😉 Anyway, we found a great marinade recipe that I mixed up and Mom sliced up the meat… go teamwork! The jerky’s marinating now.

For dinner, I cooked chicken curry again… so good! This time, I also cooked a cucumber soup, I was a bit hesitant, but happily shocked when it tasted AMAZING.

Woohoo! Day 10: Done!

Paleo: Day 9

I had some leftover steak and macadamia nuts for breakfast.  We found a water leak last night, so it was nice not to have to cook this morning.  Super props to Mom and Tooti for digging up the water pipe!

For lunch I cooked chicken breast and Indian-style slaw.  Flavorful and different.

I cooked chicken curry for dinner, one of Tooti’s favorites.  It ended up working out really well since she dug up the water pipe… like a little “SURPRISE!” to end the day with.  This was my first time EVER making a curry dish and I have to say, it turned out tasting pretty awesome.

I found a delicious coconut milk (canned Golden Star) and it tastes great in coffee too.  Definitely a nice treat.

Paleo: Day 8

We had turkey bacon, applesauce, and walnuts for breakfast.  I wouldn’t have thought about combining the 3 into a meal, but it was great!

I made a salad with grilled chicken for lunch and the flavor was incredible.  It’s possibly my favorite salad now.  It was so good that Mom asked if I could “put a star” by the recipe (as a favorite).  Awesome.

After lunch, I went ahead and got the rest of the salad ready for our snack, so when I got back from Zumba with Mom (Woohoo Mom!) I just threw it all into a bowl and mixed it up.  I’m learning that planning ahead definitely helps.

For dinner I steamed veggies and cooked some steak.  I haven’t really done steak that much, ever, so I kind of guessed on the spices.  Salt, pepper, garlic powder and paprika was the combination today and it turned out to be a winner.  Sooo good!!
